Elevated/Admin Notepad++ Context Menu

Posted on .

I use NotePad++ on Windows and sometimes it is a little frustrating when UAC gets in the way of my editing some files. I have to manually load NotePad++ as Administrator, and try again.

This INF file will install an extra context menu called “Edit with NotePad++ (elevated)”.
notepad_elevated_context_menu

Once downloaded, right click the file and choose Install.

Note: The install script assumes NotePad++ is at “C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe”. You can adjust the location in the install script by editing the very last line.
